Books, Gardens, Dogs


Me...Jane - You probably will recognize the sweet drawing style of Patrick McDonnell if you are a fan of the comic strip, MUTTS. I just adore his style and the art work in this book about Jane Goodall and her stuffed chimpanzee is just fantastic. There is a sort of dreamy quality to the work and there are little details much like scrapbooking and stamping. This should make an excellent addition to any child library as a first reader that any one would enjoy. I really enjoyed the story about Jane and her stuffed chimpanzee, Jubilee and was educated about her drive as well as entertained.
